Following on from their debut album and a European tour, Ascendant Vierge return with a music video for ‘Je Suis Un Avion’. Directed by long-time collaborator Jamie Harley, the video explores a balance of cinematic moments and their creativity.
Harley has already worked closely with artists such as Koudlam and Flavien Berger, adding immersive and detailed touches. In this track with multiple references, they all conjure up a UK-flavoured breakbeat/big beat possibly reminiscent at times of Fatboy Slim.
‘Une Nouvelle Chance’ has aimed to become an album for the new generation of rave and a statement against outdated genre conventions. The duo has developed a blend of lyrical trance-pop club music on tracks like ‘À L'Infini’ mixed by the London based producer Geoff Swan (YUNGBLUD, Charli XCX, MØ). Likewise, their track ‘Influenceur’, apparently became a party track at techno clubs and racked up 10M+ streams and counting.
Quickly after the album release, they spread their sound and aesthetic across European shows including Melt Festival, Dour Festival, Berghain and Village Underground to name only a few.
Ascendant Vierge was born in 2019 from the musical encounter between one of Paris’ hardcore music producers, Paul Seul (Casual Gabberz), and the goth-pop singer, Mathilde Fernandez. A handful of self-produced tracks combining baroque and lyrical pop vocals with hard techno, trance or Eurodance productions was enough to catch the attention of fans and critics.
Ascendant Vierge ‘Je Suis Un Avion’ is out now.
